We’ve been fortunate to work with many great institutions of higher learning across the country since our information literacy assessment went into production. In fact, we even have a few institutions that started with us in 2006 and are still testing with Project SAILS today.
One such institution is Polk State College, under the direction of Bill Foege. We had the opportunity to sit down with Bill at ACRL 2013 in Indianapolis to learn more about how he has used our information literacy test at his institution.
As Bill shares, Polk utilized the cohort assessment within their nursing program to better understand the information literacy skills of its students.
In 2010, Polk began testing graduating students with the individual scores test at both their Winter Haven and Lakeland campuses.
Polk State College has utilized both versions of our information literacy assessment in order to collect different types of information – exploring the individual skills of students and determining the skills acquired by graduating students during their two years of study.
